Limerick Ode To Donald Trump

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020

Trump has plenty of gilt, but no guilt.
He is shameless and stands at a tilt.
He jilted his wives.
On chaos he thrives.
And his character’s shoddily built.

Limerick Ode To Republican Hypocrisy

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2020

“Toobin: McConnell engaging in ‘greatest act of hypocrisy in American political history’ with Ginsburg replacement vote”

I despise all the brazen hypocrisy
From Republican pols. Seems democracy
Has been callously cast
Aside. I’m aghast
At their theo-and-corpora-tocracy.

R. I. P. RBG (Limerick)

Saturday, September 19th, 2020

I’m too sad to write humorous verse;
Things have gone from horrendous to worse.
R. I. P. RBG!
You’ll be much missed by me,
As I watch Mitch McConnell and curse.

Mask Mandate Madness (Limerick)

Wednesday, September 16th, 2020

Headline: “Biden on Trump’s Attack on Him for Not Introducing Mask Mandate: ‘To Be Clear, I Am Not Currently President’”

Biden promised to give us?” Trump asks.
For logic, I mourn,
Cuz I sure could have sworn
That’s among Donald’s President-tasks.

Trump’s Killer Instinct (Limerick)

Tuesday, September 15th, 2020

Donald’s base should start writing their wills,
Cuz he feeds on large audience thrills;
Crammed together indoors,
Scanty masks, chair-filled floors.
Donald Trump doesn’t care whom he kills.

Ante Up! (Limerick)

Tuesday, September 8th, 2020

Ante up, if you’re anti the guy
In the White House. You surely know why:
If we fail to vote out
That liar and lout,
Bid all that is good a goodbye.

Friday, September 4th, 2020

Headline: “Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’”

Here’s the latest Trump quote from accusers:

You enlist? You’re a “Sucker.”
That’s Donald the Schmuck –er–
Muck-Spreader and King of Abusers.

Voting-Fraudster-In-Chief (Limerick)

Thursday, September 3rd, 2020

Which is awful, unlawful advice.
His words aren’t just flawed;
He’s encouraging fraud.
Yet another Trump crime with no price.

Pious Donald (Limerick)

Sunday, August 30th, 2020

Dear Donald, it’s Sunday today.
How was church? Did you mask-lessly pray?
Oh that’s right — church is just
A photo-op must.
“We want GOD!”? A fake-pious display.

Another Promise Unkept (Limerick)

Friday, August 28th, 2020

Trump way back in 2016: “I am the law and order candidate.”

“Law and Order’s” a Trump campaign vow,
But the promise that Trump’s making now
Is a ’16 repeat
That he broke. So unseat
Donald Trump and let Joe take a bow.

Pandemic? WHAT Pandemic? (Limerick)

Friday, August 28th, 2020

Donald Trump and his cronies pretend
That COVID has come to an end.
But magical thinking
Solves nothing: No shrinking
Of death counts — infections ascend.

Trump-Logic (Limerick)

Friday, August 28th, 2020

Blaming Biden for civil unrest
Falls afoul of ye old straight-face test.
Cuz the last time I checked
Trump was prez, and he’s wrecked
Our great nation. (So much for “Be Best.”)

Limerick Ode To The Liar-In-Chief

Tuesday, August 25th, 2020

“Dems will steal the election,” says Trump —
A small part of his regular dump
Of bald fabrications
In Donald’s orations;
Our Liar-In-Chief on the stump.

The Trump Cult (Limerick)

Monday, August 24th, 2020

“In lieu of a party platform, Republicans express ‘strong support’ of Trump.”

The GOP seems to exult
In becoming the Donald Trump Cult.
No platform this year —
Just a Donald Trump cheer;
Lots of toadies, but not one adult!

“Pious” Trump (Limerick)

Sunday, August 23rd, 2020

Trump Tweet: “Happy Sunday! We want GOD!”

“Happy Sunday!” tweets Trump. “We want GOD!”
As a “GOD”-lover, Trump is a fraud.
Not an ounce of remorse!
And he’s golfing, of course.
(Hoping “GOD” will appear and applaud?)

If Susan B. Anthony Could Write Limericks

Tuesday, August 18th, 2020

“President Donald Trump on Tuesday signed a pardon for women’s suffrage icon Susan B. Anthony, who was arrested in 1872 for casting a ballot when women could not vote.”

Dear Donald, your pardon’s rejected;
I despise pardonees you’ve protected!
Stop pretending to care
About gals, and don’t dare
Use my pardon to get reelected.

The Perennially “Concerned” Sen. Collins (Limerick)

Saturday, August 15th, 2020

Headline: “Susan Collins Expresses ‘Concerns’ Over Delays In Mail Delivery”

Susan Collins — “concerned” once again;
She clucks like a malcontent hen,
As if truly upset
By misdeeds or a threat…
But follow-through votes? Not that Sen!

Trump’s Executive “Order” Scam (Limerick)

Monday, August 10th, 2020

Washington Post Headline: “Here’s what is actually in Trump’s four executive orders

The details on payroll taxes, unemployment and evictions are not as generous as he made them sound.”

Dear Donald, how sneakily clever!
Will your “orders” help voters? No never!
But your base who’s unschooled
In the law may be fooled
By your “efforts” while pulling that lever.

Putin’s Mission Accomplished (Limerick)

Sunday, July 26th, 2020

There’s a fellow who’s grinning right now
At our chaos, fear, poverty. Wow!
All his orders were heeded;
His Trump-scheme succeeded.
Putin’s earned his dystopian bow.

Wednesday, July 15th, 2020

“Ivanka Trump urged out-of-work Americans to “find something new” Tuesday as part of a new jobs initiative designed to tout the benefits of skills training and career paths that don’t require a college degree.”

Unemployed? You don’t know what to do?
Well Ivanka says “Find something new.”
What a genius she is;
A career guidance whiz!
“Trophy Daughter” has rescued us. Whew!
